Fatima's Sticky Cinnamon buns
1&1/2 cups of lukewarm milk
1 packet instant dry yeast
1/4 cup of sugar
1 large egg
1/2 a cup of melted butter
4 cups of cake flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp of nutmeg( optional )
1/4 cup of butter
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1/2 a cup of golden syrup or maple syrup .
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon of ground cinnamon
3 Tablespoons of melted butter
For the dough, measure all the ingredients into a bowl and stir with a wooden spoon, turn the dough out onto a work surface dusted with flour and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes.Transfer the dough to an oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in size, 90 minutes.
For the syrup add the butter, brown sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring until melted and the mixture is bubbling. Put one side.
For the filling, stir the brown sugar and cinnamon together and set aside. Have the melted butter ready.
Turn the risen dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll it out into a rectangle. Brush the entire surface of the dough with the melted butter and sprinkle with the cinnamon brown sugar mixture. Roll up the dough from the longer side and then cut the roll into 12 pieces. Place these into the prepared pan, evenly spaced, cover with plastic wrap or tea towel and let rise for an hour.
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Uncover the risen sticky buns and bake them for 30 minutes, or until they are a rich golden brown. Pour the syrup over the buns while still warm.
I make a simple lemon icing and drizzle over cooled cinnamon buns. The juice of half a lemon mixed with icing sugar till you get a thick consistency then drizzle with a spoon.
